Liefeld's comic book in development for the big screen

Rob Liefeld’s comic book “The Godyssey” is in development for the big screen with producers Todd Garner and Brooklyn Weaver on board.

Garner’s Broken Road and Weaver’s Energy entertainment will produce. Story centers on the gods of the grand pantheon, including Zeus, Buddha, Ra and Pangu, who must come together to fight a legion of fallen gods in an epic battle over mankind.

Garner discovered the project last month via Twitter when comic book creator Rob Liefeld tweeted about “The Godyssey” becoming his next big project to manager/producer Weaver. Garner and Broken Road exec Sean Robins heard the details of Liefeld’s idea — currently in outline form — and moved to partner with the duo and lock up the rights.

Sony-based Garner is in post-production on tornado actioner “Black Sky” at New Line. He has a long-standing relationship with Liefeld (“Deadpool”), having bid on the “Planet Terry” pitch when he was Revolution’s president of production; that project eventually landed at New Line with Liefeld and Weaver producing.

Liefeld and Weaver also set up Liefeld’s “Bloodstrike” last year with Adi Shankar’s 1984 Private Defense Contractors. Liefeld was a co-founder of Image Comics in the early 1990s, which launched with his “Youngblood” series.

Garner, Robins and Weaver are also producing “Science Fair” at MGM.
